Donald Trump took to Twitter to accuse Barack Obama of wiretapping his offices even before he became the 45th president of the United States of America. In a series of tweets, the U.S. president said, “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”

Not only this, Trump even made efforts to defend Jeff Sessions, the U.S. attorney general who is facing questions over his rumored meetings with the Russian ambassador. He tweeted, “The first meeting Jeff Sessions had with the Russian Amb was set up by the Obama Administration under education program for 100 Ambs…”

At this moment, there is no additional information that substantiates information about the president’s claims that former President Barack Obama had “wiretapped” Trump Tower, and it is still not clear on what information Donald Trump was basing the said allegations.

That being said, Daily Mail reported that according to a close family friend of Barack Obama, the former president’s goal is to “oust Trump from the presidency either by forcing his resignation or through his impeachment.”

It is also reported that Obama has come out in support of the protest opposing President Donald Trump’s executive order to restrict immigration from Muslim-majority countries. A spokesman said Obama thinks they’re “citizens exercising their Constitutional right to assemble, organize and have their voices heard by their elected officials is exactly what we expect to see when American values are at stake.”
